How Long Do Your Weatherproof Labels Need To Last?
Each label material is weatherproof for a specific amount of time, so make sure to tell your customer service representative about your particular application. Below are some points you should consider before getting started with custom weatherproof labels.
- Different materials have different lifespans for weatherproofing. Our customer service team will be happy to help you select the best material for your application.
- A laminate finish or UV coating help protect inks so your labels look great longer.
- Polypropylene, vinyl, and polyester films are ideal materials for weatherproof labels because they are unlikely to smudge, fade or bleed.
Note: Our weatherproof labels are best suited for indoor applications and environments with minimal to no sunlight exposure. If your label will primarily be used outdoors in direct sunlight, silk screen printing is the best method to maintain the label’s quality. At this time, we do not offer silk screen printing.
A Beautiful (and Durable) Solution: Shrink Sleeves
One way you can make your product stand out and weatherproofed at the same time is with shrink sleeve labels. These labels look great on unusual shaped bottles or with visually striking designs because its graphics completely wrap around the container. Not only are shrink sleeves visually attractive, they also have built-in protection for your label design because the design is printed on the inside of the moisture and scuff resistant material.
